Our article "Air Traffic Control in Home-Office" started as a Sunday morning coffee idea, triggered by a comment on remote towers on Linkedin. It now has more than 5,500 views and counting. We've got a lot of feedback and will publish an updated version soon. Spoiler alert: while this is likely possible at a technical level, many obstacles are coming from the human factors side and from how ATCOs traffic together as a team - making it unlikely that home-office ATC will turn into reality soon.
